So my daughter was diagnosed yesterday with trigger thumb. I pretty much thought that was going to be the diagnose. She had a choice of a splint for four weeks or a cortisone shot. She choose the splint. She will most likely have to have the shot at the end of the four weeks anyways, but I let her make the choice. As we were leaving the doctor advised that this was from the diabetes. That I was not expecting. When I got home I did some research and sure enough he was correct. I'm really upset about this. We just passed our 10 year mark and this has been the first thing that has been directly related to her diabetes. I know trigger thumb is not a big deal and it could be so much worse, but the realization what this disease does to the body just became personal. She is only 12 years old and the disease is already affecting her body. So I'm just looking for some support with respect to the realization of what diabetes can do to the body and to see if anyone else had to deal with trigger thumb before. It looks like if she ends up having the shot it can cause blood sugar issues and most still ended up having small surgery to fix the problem anyways. It also looks like this can become a problem with her other fingers in the future as well.
